A2 Level English

We’ll tell you all about the A2 level of English on the CEFR

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages is an international standard for classifying language skills. It establishes a scale of six levels in three blocks: basic, intermediate, and advanced. 

The A2 level of English, called “Waystage” by the same CEFR, is the second level within the basic block. This level implies that the student masters communication in simple and everyday situations based on simple and direct exchanges of information on general topics.

At ABA English, we can help you to reach level A2 and to keep on advancing if you wish. We have a great method that will keep you enthusiastic so that you never lose your desire to keep on learning.

Tips for achieving the A2 level of English

With the following tips, you’ll be able to prepare yourself to opt for an A2 English level certification or simply practice and learn English at an A2 level:

Start reading

You need to practice with very simple, short texts and specific information. You could experiment with children’s books, though they may not capture your interest. You also have the possibility of starting with our certified English course where we’ll provide you with the appropriate material for your needs.

Keep a notebook handy

Write down your shopping list or homework list. Do you keep a planner at work or a notebook at school? Start writing it in English. Also, make a list of words you don’t know the meaning of in English and another list with any new English words you find. Then look them all up in the dictionary and expand your vocabulary.

Say goodbye to dubbing

Start watching your favorite TV series and movies in English and with the subtitles in English, too. If you’ve already seen them, even better! This means you can focus on listening and understanding.

Find someone to talk to

Having a frequent conversation partner will help you a lot since you’ll strive to make yourself understood. It will also increase your confidence in expressing yourself. At ABA English, we want you to talk with our teachers and with the other students. That’s why we have our Speaking Sessions, where you’ll be able to discuss study topics or current events.
